Fun, lighthearted frolic
21 February 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Viewed this film online and while it is no great shakes in cinematic history it is a fun filled romp with a wonderful supporting performance by Eve Arden. It has to do with mistaken identity, the use of royalty in disguise and being with commoners, putting on a show musical, the egotistical star of the show as well as romance between the various characters. All of these stories have been done, but it is still a cute and well done musical with the background of Earl Carroll and his Vanities production. One never believes for a minute that any of these actors could pull of royalty but it is fun nonetheless and perfect to watch on a lazy weekend afternoon.
